Simple Sticky Notes offers you an endless stack of digital Post-it notes, which you can use simply to take important annotations or as reminders, as you can assign alarms to each of your sticky notes in a straightforward way. The notes themselves are fully customizable in terms of color, opacity, and fonts, and you can share them to your favorite social networks without leaving the program.

This free tool is extremely easy to use, just as easy as it is to handwrite a Post-it note and stick it on your fridge. However, it presents you with a number of features and functions that its paper counterpart cannot offer you. Instead of buying 24 stacks of Post-it notes in different colors, you can choose any of the 24 colors available in Simple Sticky Notes and create your own ones. You can assign a different meaning to each of these colors so that you can color-code all your notes easily. You can also change the color of a note with just one click (say, if the message has changed from “important” to “urgent”). You can also define the level of opacity or transparency of your notes, change their size, duplicate them, lock them (so that nobody can change their message), and put them always on top of everything else on your desktop. You can export your annotations to text files or, as said, share them with your friends and family on Facebook or Twitter and send them via e-mail to your contacts.

Finally, the possibility of assigning alarms to your most important reminders is probably the program’s main asset. You can use your own audio files to let you know that a deadline is coming up, and repeat it as many times as needed on the date and at the exact time of your choice.

Simple Sticky Notes will not only save you from populating your desk with scraps of paper and from forgetting all kinds of important events.
